When it’s your wedding, every little detail matters, especially the small ones. Handing loved ones a special token take home is a nice way to say thank you for their attendance — and their gifts! I loved planning my own outdoor wedding but I’ll admit, it’s tough to get started. If you’ve opted for a garden wedding but need a few favor ideas, try these sweet, garden-related favors.
Nest placeholders: This favor is a tiny nest with a few ornamental birds’ eggs tucked inside. Select elegant cardstock and print placeholders. The nests make delightful place holders. They’ll be excited to take this trinket home. None will be left behind!
Mini birdcages: Here’s an idea that’s sweet and charming-it’s a birdcage tea light and place card holder. If you’d like something a little cheaper, you can find beautiful, paper birdcages that hold ting bags of candies.
Glass lemonade jars: Are you after a playful, casual feel at your reception? Provide your guests a pop-top lemonade drink. I love the hinged rubber stoppers. Print some personalized labels and set them up on the guest table.
Butterfly or bee wine stoppers: Everyone can use a wine stopper, right? They make thoughtful gifts too! Send guests home with wine stoppers that have a butterfly or bee topper.
Decoupage match boxes: Okay, DIY-ers, this one’s for you. Find a scrapbook paper pattern that represents a garden them and use the print as covers for these sweet gifts. Buy large matchboxes and remove the covers. Cut the papers to match the cover size. Use a little white glue to cover the matchbox cover with your paper. Want to personalize it a little more? Tuck a handwritten note inside!
Butterfly swizzle sticks: Tuck handfuls of these in Mason jars. They make great tabletop decorations and everyone will love taking them home. Choose sticks in bright colors or pastel, according to your wedding colors.
Daisy or flower favor boxes: Play up the garden blossom idea with these charming, whimsical paper boxes. Fill them with lemon candies or a white chocolate medallion in the shape of a flower.
Personalize your wedding with favors that bring your theme together. Don’t forget to gifts for the bridal party too!
